The Top 10 New School MCs



The K.R.I.T. stands for King Remembered In Time, and in 2011 Big K.R.I.T. solidified himself as a rhyme and production heavyweight.


Early in the year, the Mississippi rapper released his second official mixtape of original music, Return of 4Eva, a smashing blend of vivid lyricism and soul stirring beats. It was the follow up to 2010’s K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, the mixtape–which also played more like an album–that made everyone take note of this mega-talented Southerner.


Def Jam took note of K.R.I.T. talents, signing him on the dotted line for the honor of releasing his forthcoming debut, Live From The Underground. K.R.I.T. is next in line from a strong heritage of artists like UGK or 8Ball & MJG, known for expert lyricism over bass heavy beats. But the difference is K.R.I.T. is poised to breakthrough into the mainstream if he drops the right record.
Armed with his trusty rhymes and his own instrumental, bet on K.R.I.T.

    First off, I didn’t listen to all of the artists, but I’m left unfulfilled. When I see a headline about the top ten new school  MC’s, I’m thinkin’ mother f*ckers killin’ it with a fire inside. Spittin venom and knowledge and edification to the youth.  The two I listened to, were rehashes of the past, which really isn’t new school. On top of that, it was boring as hell because they weren’t even as good as the ones past that they want to emulate. I aint here to hate. I give props to anyone makin’ moves and trying, but I guess I expected a little more creativity and individuality.
    You can do your own thing and it doesn’t have to sound like every other rapper from the past 2o years. Lets try and turn this sh*t upside down. DJ’s and Producers are in need of some mushrooms as well. Maybe that will spark some creative genius. Peace
